About Chloeography

Sales 134
On Etsy since 2008

A passionate metalsmith's attempt at bringing the best smile out of you, one hammer blow at a time.

My name is Chloe Ching, I was born and raised in Hong Kong, then moved to California with my family in 2001 after graduating from high school. Adapting to and enjoying the new environment relatively quickly, I never forgot my Chinese roots. With my love of art and the empowering support of friends and family, I graduated from California State University, Long Beach with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 3D media, specializing in metalsmithing and jewelry.

Taking advantage of both the Eastern and the Western style of education that I have been blessed to receive, I spent some time visualizing my goal in the circus of possibilities, and finally started my own jewelry line, mylifemylogic in 2012.

My passion and my vision are simple, I believe that the best accessory anyone can wear is a perfect smile from the bottom of the heart. By doodling with my torch and saw blades, I strive to have my jewelry serve as a reminder of one’s natural inner beauty.

Other than metalsmithing, I love learning about new materials, traveling, eating, cooking, dancing, and meeting new people. I also find clowns to be attractive, and I can never resist hugging gigantic gumball machines.

Whether you are a buyer or another seller or simply an admirer, thanks for stopping by! Everything in this store is handmade one-of-a-kind piece, which I had a lot of fun making.

Traditionally trained as a metalsmith with a BFA in metalsmithing and jewelry from CSULB, I also enjoy combining my favorite material- metal, with all kinds of mixed media. I believe that the human body is the best pedestal for wearable artwork; I also believe that jewelry is more than just a fashion statement, but a precious keepsake for people to express their thoughts and care to those they love. I found it extremely rewarding every time a client tells me that my work has brought a smile (occasionally tears of joy) on someone's face.

Thank you for letting me do that for you.

Rush orders:
Express shipping option is available upon request for ready to ship pieces.

For a custom piece, there will be a $25 rush fee. As long as I have all the material I need, it will be finished within a week. Every single piece is unique and requires different techniques which sometimes I will not be able to rush it at all. For example, the resin I use takes at least 72 hours to cure. There is no amount of rush fee I could charge to possibly make it faster. If that is the case, I will explain it before I proceed with the project. I apologize for only being able to give you an approximate estimated time frame.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom made:
If it is a tweak for an existing design, for example changing chain length, or making a pair of drop earrings into studs, there will not be any extra charge except for the difference in material cost. However, if you are having a special idea and would like to make it into a wearable piece, the starting rate is $300. Feel free to send me a message for inquiries.

I welcome wholesale orders for most of the "made to order" pieces, and offer a 20% off for orders over $300. Please send me a message for more details.
